Fire Levels Building
A garage on Creekside was completely destroyed when it went up
in flames on the morning of December 8th. Winds carried the
flames to nearby trees, but the fire was extinguished by the
Sargent Fire Department before it could spread any further.

Be On the Alert . . .
It has come to the attention of the Sargent
Volunteer Fire Department that someone has been soliciting
donations in the department’s name without their authorization.
These requests have been through telephone calls from a man with
a heavy accent. He requests donations for the Sargent Fire
Department be mailed to a particular address, which is
definitely NOT the Sargent Fire Department’s address. Your local
Fire & EMS Department does NOT solicit donations by telephone
nor do they employ any outside solicitors to ask for donations.
If you wish to make a donation to the department, contact a
local member or stop by the fire station before their monthly
meeting at 7 p.m. on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Pursuit leads to discovery of marijuana grow house
On Friday, Sept. 21, Matagorda County
sheriff’s Office narcotics officer Sgt. Chris Kruppa was working
highway interdiction as part of the Border Star Program. Kruppa
attempted to ;stop a Ford Expedition traveling at a high rate of
speed on FM 1862. The Expedition sped up and turned onto Zemanic
Road and then onto Morris Road. As Kruppa attempted to stop the
vehicle, the Expedition left the roadway and traveled through a
grass field and two locked cattle gates. The vehicle continued
through a field and crashed into the East Carancahua River.
Kruppa observed 4 Hispanic males leave the vehicle through the
driver’s window before it became almost completely submerged.
By this time, back-up units Sgt. Monty Mozley and DPS Trooper
Dustin Gardner arrived on the scene. While out of their vehicles
searching for the fleeing suspects, they located an open garage
in a clearing on property located west of the crash site. The
garage contained grow lights and marijuana plants growing in
buckets. The DPS narcotics unit was contacted and obtained a
search warrant for the property. One hundred eighty eight (188)
marijuana plants were seized and destroyed as a result of the
operation. The property was unoccupied at the time. However,
there is an active investigation being lead by DPS Agent Richard
Disaster Recovery Funds-Sargent Roads
The list of roads to be included in the
Disaster Recovery Funds package is as follows.
Carancahua Seagull Neptune
Dolphin Way Bluewater Flamingo Pompano Old Caney Bonita
Whitecap Intracoastal Seabreeze Heron Canal Drive Marina Drive
Please note we are dealing with the Federal Government and have
to jump through all their hoops (sometimes more than once). This
is our preliminary list and is certainly subject to change if
one or more does not fit all the qualifications. Right now I
feel pretty comfortable all the above will qualify. I would
anticipate work beginning in Spring of 2013. Keep your fingers
crossed. Do not hesitate in contacting me if further information

It was Palm Sunday and because of a sore throat,
5-year old Johnny stayed home from church with a sitter.
When the family returned home, they were carrying
several palm branches. The boy asked what they were for.
“People held them over Jesus’ head as he walked by.”
“wouldn’t you just know it,” the boy fumed, “The one
Sunday I don’t go, he shows up!”
